it long term. >> one other thing about the nra, wayne lapierre said in part, barack obama, joe biden and their gun ban allies want to bully you, strip you of your second amendment freedoms. i warned you that day is coming, now it's here. then a call for greater membership, which is exactly what's happening. nia malika, the battle is now joined, not a battle either side wanted to engage in during the presidential campaign. we just went through a two-year campaign, where except for one question in one debate, there was no talk about gun violence or any kind of legislation on guns. >> that's right. because for years we have seen republicans and democrats who were afraid of the nra. that changed on that awful day in sandy hook when 26 people were slaughtered, and so we'll have to see going forward if anything else changes in terms of legislation. >> thank you, both, nia malika henderson from "the washington post" and chuck that todd. joining me now, joe scarborough, host of msnbc's "morning joe." in looking what the president has done and the nra did to tee it up, where are the sides and

close look at it as is joe biden who is expected to come out with some recommendations in the next 24 hours. >> reporter: over 30,000 gun deaths in the u.s. every year, the challenge, gun control. >> i lost my husband right before christmas. >> reporter: if anyone knows the pain of losing someone to gun violence, it is new york congresswoman carol mccarthy. her husband was dilled in a mass shooting on the long island railroad. after years of trying to pass gun laws on capitol hill--all the time it was difficult because there's so much anger, why are we allowing this to continue to happen. >> on day one of the new congress, mccarthy and other lawmakers introduced or reintroduced -- several senate bills are on the way but all are far from a gun deal. in his first term, president obama passed no laws permitting gun use. even before he's sworn in again, he's expected to review proposals from his new gun task force. >> this is a team that has a very specific task to pull together real reforms right now. >> the white house is focused on a white ranging plan involving more than just firearms

in newtown, connecticut. but vice president joe biden is expected to deliver his recommendations to the president tomorrow is holding one last meeting today with a dozen house democrats. as the gun control discussion takes center stage on capitol hill, the white house is already saying it will put its full force behind those proposals including what could be the toughest fight, the call to revibe the assault weapons ban. >> assault weapon ban is a tough one because it's hard to define what assault weapon is. and if we're just defining it by what it looks like, that doesn't do much for me. >> you think you have enough on capitol hill to keep an assault weapons ban from passing. >> i think right now we do. when the president takes all the powers off, willing to expend political capital, you don't want to make predictions -- you don't want to bet your house on the outcome. but i would say that the likelihood is that they are not going to be able to get an assault weapons ban through this congress. >> instead of dividing ourselves as a country along partisan lines let's come back to

spooked by something that happened 20 years ago. don't forget, joe biden who was running this was in the middle of that fight, then, too as a senator. so democrats are completely spooked by the gun issue. that's not going to change. what they have to be convinced of is that public opinion has shifted because of newtown and that there are some of these fights, not all of them, some of these fights that they can win. i mean, republicans are worried if they vote for some of these issues, they are going to be primaried by more conservative republicans. democrats understand that this may be an opportunity. >> gloria borger, thanks so much for that. >> sure. >>> you're about to hear oprah winfrey's reaction to lance armstrong's admission that he's a cheater. >>> later, does another member of the clinton family have political ambitions?

them all but that's part of what joe biden did. and also he said that -- he said that if you have a policeman at a school, they would have a pistol. they wouldn't even have a glock. i don't know what that is but they wouldn't have one. you know what policemen use. all a shooter would have to do is get across the street with an assault weapon and shoot him. >> stephanie: yeah. >> caller: then come in the school. right? so what protection is that against an assault weapon? >> stephanie: yep. you know, it's interesting. she was talking about so and so is a hunter. i heard ed schultz say, he's a hunter. he said that last night. everybody knows i've been a hunter. i'm sick of having to state your props on guns to have the debate. it really shouldn't necessarily be relevant. you have no credibility -- >> unless you use guns all the time. >> stephanie: right. exactly. i've gone on record as saying i'm entirely too spazy. i don't know how i got that. this scratch here. this bruise here. don't know. spazy. >> how can you aim if you're crying? >> stephanie: and i'm unnecessarily weepy. 29 m

what the president or joe biden have, would have stopped sandy hook. to claim this this could have stopped sandy hook, it's disturbing and misleading. and rahm emanuel now mayor of chicago, former chief of staff of the president, when he was chairman of the democratic national campaign committee had a strategy to recruit pro gun democrats to retake the house and guess what, they were successful. the president had a policy the first term not to touch the issue of gun control. and they're making conclusions that i think majority of americans don't agree with them. >> megyn: let's talk about the implications of the ad, it makes it like like john barrow is in favor of another shooter like lanza to shoot up a school. is it fair of them, an ad by a pro gun democratic politician, why didn't they use an image of the shooter? stick to the event if you want to remind us of newtown, not a democratic politician that-- >> the reason why the ad he put out is offensive to democrats, he's not saying it's supporting the second amendment, it politicizes almost fetishizing the guns and see it holding

president joe biden, gabby giffords, and the new york city mayor michael bloomberg. joining us to explain the cover, rick stangel. thanks very much. tell us why you put these individuals, these three people on the cover. >> i think, wolf, they represent the sort of three legs of the stool of people who are trying to combat gun violence of the gr progressive side. mayor bloomberg has been out spoken for a very long time about reducing gun violence and he will be contributing money personally to a super pac that will help candidates who are in favor of gun laws and, of course, gabby giffords herself is a sim poll of the terrible tragedies that can happen from deranged people using guns. >> they are the three individuals on this fight right now. they didn't get together for a formal photo shoot for the cover, did they? >> no. we shot them individually and pieced them together. congresswoman giffords couldn't come to washington. otherwise i think we would have gotten them all together. >> how difficult will it be -- and your reporters have done a lot of reporting on this -- to get the preside

's bad to leave congress out of the equation. the good thing is it appears that joe biden did solicit people from both sides of the aisle on this debate to come and have this discussion with him. i think one of the most important things that many americans agree with is that this should be a comprehensive approach. you may not agree with every tenet of what the president will talk about today or any of them, but at least it was a comprehensive approach and to hear that the nra is at least happy with some of the things involved and maybe other people who feel differently than the nra are happy with some of the things, i don't think you'll ever have a plan where every single person is going to be happy with it. so let's see what it is first before we judge it completely. in the meantime, one of the things that's causing big stir is the fact that the president is going to be surrounded when he makes this announcement by children from around the country who wrote the president letters in the wake of that tragedy. so that has become a big question today. we know that imagery in politics, s

with boehner and obama and reid and joe biden sit down. >> no, they're going to agree how much are we going to cut and then the policy people are going to see where and how. that's how it goes in washington. >> before you get to washington, how do you dweel patient demand? you have all of these new machines and technology. you go in, you're a reasonably healthy person. you say, hey, i want to use the new machine that gives you an echo cardiogram. the doctor says, no, you're fine, and you get one. >> there are two, mike, i think that's a great question. two issues there. where do patients get these ideas and why do they do it? in part, doctors are fuelling that and drive down the new jersey turnpike, what do you see? hospital after hospital. we've got cyber knife. the robot. this. we're fuelling patients demand. the second thing -- >> what does the di vinci robot do? >> i'm sure you don't. it's the four arm robot that does prostate surgery. >> those guys actually don't like me because i keep saying this. it costs about 4 or 5,000 more per surgery. for a surgeon to get really good at it, requ

and it was initiated and passed by joe biden. he is the right person to come up with what we do next. regulating assault weapons falls in the bounds of the second ammendment. this is a question of political courage. the supreme court, which defines what the constitution means and says, states that reasonable considerations are part of the second amendment. when the gun lobby raises the second amendment, it is a red herring. it is time to call them on it. hthithis is background checks, making gun trafficking a crime, and limiting magazines, requires leadership from congress and the president. but there are other steps he may take without professional approval. vice president biden understands this and we hope his recommendations include these four steps. he can call for all agencies to submit data tehhey have to the background database. every bit of data -- is a murder in the making. gun sales can go ahead in cases were we all agree they shouldn't. second, the president can direct the justice department to prosecute convicted criminals who provide false personal information during background chec
